I have been using Rosetta Stone Korean for almost two years while living in South Korea. I am a professor who speaks three languages besides English. I bought Rosetta Stone based on their advertising to learn a language like you did when you were a kid, which seemed compelling at the time.

However, the way the program is structured is nothing like "real life" because it has vague images denoting activities that could be one thing or another (Are they saying hello or goodbye? Why is that man standing with his hands over his head? Etc.). Additionally, the microphone doesn't "hear" you very well, so the speaking activities are a total disaster. Even my 6-year old daughter, who is completely fluent in Korean with no accent whatsoever can't pass a simple speaking test. Worst of all, the grammatical constructions are often wrong in Korean because there is no clear separation of singular and plural tenses, but Rosetta Stone acts like there are hard and fast rules. That is just one of many examples where they teach you Korean that people don't actually use. The problem is that Rosetta Stone has a one-size-fits-all template that doesn't deviate, and it just doesn't work for Korean.

Save your money. There are lots of online resources for learning Korean and the Seoul Global Center offers free Korean classes.

Rosetta Stone seems like a good concept. But for Korean, it is awful. Do not waste your money on this. I bought the online version of this when I first started learning Korean. I assumed (wrongly) that Rosetta stone was the gold standard of language learning software. I bought some books along with it but I figured I would be relying most heavily on the Rosetta Stone. It was the complete opposite.

This is how Rosetta is setup. It shows you a picture of a cat, while saying the word cat in Korean, and sometimes spelling it in Korean as well. Makes sense. Then, not very far into the program, it will show you a picture of a cat next to a table lying on a bed with the ceiling fan on and a door in the background... then says a sentence, in Korean, with NO English translation. So, sure, I can repeat the sentence into the microphone, get it correct, and move on. But- I have NO IDEA what I said! I found myself many times having to pause it, Google translate the Korean sentence, and figure out what I'm actually saying. Which was usually totally different from what I thought.

In addition, it does not teach you to read Hangul. It teaches you a LITTLE bit as you're moving along, but not in a way that you will remember and not quickly enough at ALL. And since there are no romanizations (a breakdown of pronunciation using English letters that you know) there are STILL words that I thought I knew from Rosetta that it turns out I've been pronouncing wrong all along. You can learn Hangul in two days maybe three by downloading any free app. I've been learning Korean for half a year and I can tell you absolutely learn Hangul first, no matter what method you decide to learn Korean.

A word of caution; Anglophones like myself should think twice before going into this product cold. Korean is a very difficult language and the partial immersion method used by this software will likely frustrate a native English speaker. The good news here is there are excellent and low priced programs which use the traditional vocabulary/grammar teaching method. Once you are familiar with the Korean alphabet and can cobble together simple sentences in Korean, you'll be ready for Rosetta Stone Korean.

I find Rosetta Stone Korean a vital instrument in my quest to learn Korean. By presenting real world scenarios it has expanded my understanding of this language exponentially. There is enough repitition to drill ideas home with sufficient fresh concepts to keep learning from going stale. I find myself almost looking forward to firing up this program and spending an hour or so delving into this most daunting language.

Of course, it is not perfect. My biggest beef is with the written lessons. Learning to write reinforces listening and speaking skills, but the way Rosetta Stone goes about it in this software is just ridiculous. The writing lessons take up a very small portion of the coursework (2-5%), yet they become very complicated early on. To make matters worse, you are afforded no margin for error like in the speaking lessons. I had a number of instances where I slaved my way through a long paragraph only to have it completely counted as wrong because of a spacing problem! Since the program will automatically send you back to a lesson if you get an unacceptable score, I began to skip the writing lessons.

That all said, you will find this a great addition in a quest to learn Korean as long as you understand it is not a magic $400+ bullet which alone will give you adequate skill in this language.

I read and try out quite a bit of language books. I really enjoy this Rosetta program, a lot. I actually suggest doing prior studies (like reading characters, basic sentence structures, and maybe a few words) before considering this program. It starts straight into reading and listening with no English explanations (which I love! I get confused with English translations, I always get stuck using English structure). The Rosetta objective (I assume) is to place you into the language(in other words "immerse" you into the language). There is also a free 3 month subscription to games (solo or interactive, though, I haven't seen any people online), itouch or iphone application that shows flash cards, and you can even make appointments with native speakers to help you practice what you learned. When the 3 month trial is over, you will be charged $25 each month. I believe Rosetta Stone is worth the price, being taking college classes cost way more including the books and making time to make it to each class. If there are cheaper classes out there, I still haven't found any in my area.

My suggestions:
My Korean collection consists of children's work books, story books, flash cards, text books, audio books, picture dictionaries, and online websites.
Pimsleur courses are good to listen to practice accent and to have words and sentences stuck in your mind. *I suggest a trial version first. Not many people like it.
Andrew Sangpil Byon's "Basic Korean: A Grammar and Workbook" is also a good choice. I especially like the teachings of sentence structure.

If money is an issue, check your local public library and decide from there. Some libraries may also have free online language programs. A local used book store may also have books you can flip through.
